The Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to discuss the newest entry into the DC Comics movieverse, Justice League!

Starting with Man of Steel in 2013, Warner Bros. has been trying to ape the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite having an available roster of arguably the best-known superheroes, the films have struggled to find acceptance, much less the acclaim of the MCU.

After a major course correction with this year’s Wonder Woman, WB has been attempting to right the ship with a lighter overall tone and more fan-pleasing interpretations of the characters. Leaving behind the darker, more grounded influence of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, the marketing of this newest film has been promising more action and high adventure, as well as some much-needed levity.

Listen in as Dave and the rest of the Irregulars discuss the highs and lows of Justice League in the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Needless Things Podcast 164 – Wonder Woman

June 8th, 2017

The Needless Commentary team convenes live in the Phantom Zone to discuss DC's newest blockbuster – Wonder Woman!
 
The modern era of films based on the DC Universe has received mixed reviews, to say the least. Man of Steel, Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad while profitable, were far from universally loved. Even within the ranks of the Needless Things Irregulars.
 
To the point where discussion of said films is strictly verboten.
 
Fans saw Wonder Woman as an opportunity to leave behind the controversial style that Zack Snyder had brought to the DC films and start anew with a tone of hope, humor, and inspiration. Director Patty Jenkins and star Gal Gadot were almost literally carrying the weight of DC on their shoulders with this new film.
 
Listen in as Phantom, Rad Ranger, Ryan, and Arian figure out whether or not DC films are back on track in the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!
